Honeywell unveils new Uvex Avatar™ safety eyewear to fit the diverse millennial workforce
12 advanced features deliver customized fit and fog-free protection
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today it has unveiled an innovative new line of safety eyewear combining style and customized features especially designed for today’s diverse millennial workforce.
Now comprising more than 1-in-3 U.S. workers, millennials are a tech-savvy, style-conscious generation that is pushing employers to take a fresh approach to personal protective equipment. Honeywell’s new Uvex Avatar line of safety eyewear, with 12 advanced features, offers the personalized fit, fog-free protection and attractive style options they seek.
“Millennials expect more customization in color, style and fit in their eyewear and Avatar delivers on all fronts,” said Wanda Sanchez-Miller, senior product marketing manager for Honeywell Industrial Safety, a global leader in personal protective equipment. “To encourage all-day wear, Avatar is fashioned after popular sport-inspired and recreational designs, uses advanced materials to provide a secure, no-slip grip, and incorporates innovative adjustability features to more comfortably fit an increasingly diverse workforce.”
Eight points of adjustability coupled with Honeywell’s exclusive Multi-Material Technology® Plus (MMT+) for exceptional flexibility, grip and comfort make Avatar a customizable and comfortable choice. Key features of Avatar include:
- Soft temple tip pads for an ergonomic fit beneath helmets
- Angle-adjustable ratchet temples delivering a 15° adjustment range for customized fit
- Insulated wire-core temples for superior adjustability and dielectric wear
- Flexible, wraparound temples with MMT+ for custom flex and fit
- Innovative flexible nose pad and floating nose loop (patent pending technology)
- Soft temples and nose pad made with MMT+ for grip and comfort
- Soft brow frame constructed of MMT+ for cushioned comfort
- Ultra-light frame constructed of leading-edge composite materials
Select pairs of Avatar come with Uvex HydroShield®, the industry’s top-performing anti-fog lens coating and hardcoat, to combat fog and scratches longer in every environment. A patent-pending indirect venting system promotes air circulation to further reduce the effects of fog.
Avatar’s nine-base wraparound lens maximizes field of vision and protective coverage, and is available in five tints – clear, gray, amber, blue mirror, and SCT-Reflect 50 – suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Frames are available in five colors: black, blue, red, teal, and yellow. Avatar is dielectric and meets the ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.32, and EN166 safety standards.
